Saving leaves

By tonight most of the gorgeous Fall leaves will be torn off the trees (thanks a lot, Sandy), so Sofía and I went around this past weekend collecting them to make “stained glass.”

We sandwiched them between sheets of waxed paper and ironed them on medium-high (put a towel underneath to protect your ironing board).

We made three long sheets to go on different glass doors.

Sofía was duly impressed. Once we hung them up she forgot all about them, of course, but I’m going to enjoy looking at them for the next few days. They won’t last long, but at least we’ve preserved the colors of Fall for just a few more days!
